Did anyone get a call from NYU asking for your Q1 grades?
Do you think they ask to the applicants who are on the verge of being denied? or do you think they simply call every E.D. applicant? or do they only call the ones they are likely to accept?

    I think they only want the quarter grades of the applicants whom they are considerig for admission

    Well, I honestly doubt that they take the time to call everyone. If they called you, it is most likely a positive thing. Trust me, they would not call anyone who they've weeded out as not being a competitive applicant. What were your grades for Q1?
  • kjayson7kjayson7 Registered User Posts: 516 Member
    My Q1 GPA is 3.633...lol bit low
  • RKATCRKATC Registered User Posts: 226 Junior Member
    That's not bad. You applied for the School of Social Work, right?

    If so, it really shouldn't hurt you.
  • kjayson7kjayson7 Registered User Posts: 516 Member
    Yes, and I think...it's not that competitive compare to CAS, Stern, Tisch, and Gallatin.

    I hope...I hope so! I want to go !!!!

    my senior grades are terrible...2.8 for Q1...im not even taking hard classes because I pretty much finished my school's offerings of math last year (with a's btw)
    I really hope they don't weigh senior grades heavily

    I just talked to my counselor today and he told me that he didn't get a call from NYU asking about my Q1 grades. Why would they be calling people? Is it good I didn't get a call?
  • kjayson7kjayson7 Registered User Posts: 516 Member
    :) I found out that it's good to receive a call. My counselor personally called the NYU admissions officer whom she knows very well. She went to NYU for her Masters degree and knows some people at the admissions. It's an indication that I am getting an acceptance, but again, never 100% for sure.

    Also, I got a mail from NYU admissions office today. Did anyone get this?
    It says, it's for N.Y.U. "Students". Yay!
    Am I overreacting? This might be just a mail being sent to every E.D. applicant. Did any of you get this mail today? or the mysterious phone call?
  • RKATCRKATC Registered User Posts: 226 Junior Member
    Premature congrats.

    You most likely got in, but don't expect it just in case.

    What were your stats?
  • kjayson7kjayson7 Registered User Posts: 516 Member
    Thank you,

    but, I cannot accept it! Because I am not 100% sure. Tell me I won't get in, so that way I will be really happy if i see a big fat envelope after coming back home from school. around 2:45PM...on Wed...Dec 15
  • RKATCRKATC Registered User Posts: 226 Junior Member
    Nevermind, I saw your stats on another post.

    What made you decide to apply Social Work?
    What do you plan on doing with it?

    The anticipation would probabaly drive me insane. Good luck.
  • kjayson7kjayson7 Registered User Posts: 516 Member
    You can clearly see that I have a passion for Social Work. Go look at my E.C.

    I want to double major in Social Work and Political Science.
    or I want to transfer out to CAS and major in International relations or Political Science and Economics or Russian....I do not know...
    However I know that I want to major in something around there...Social Sciences.

    I want to goto a Law School...so I might have to take Political Science
